Global Leaders Convene to Counter New Threats, Review Certification Goals

ICMC will build on a decade of cybersecurity thought leadership as the industry faces widespread changes and emerging threats in commercial cryptography. Post-quantum algorithms are finally here and now the real work of implementation begins. The new FIPS 140-3 standard continues its rollout as the single accepted certification for secure cryptographic modules. Simultaneously, European regulators are moving forward with a wide range of related cybersecurity standards. Efforts to maintain the security of open source solutions continue apace. New approaches to entropy are coming, and the promise of homomorphic cryptography lies ahead.

In the face of these and other changes, cryptographic professionals will meet in Ottawa for the International Cryptographic Module Conference. It’s is the leading annual event for global expertise in commercial cryptography. Over 400 industry leaders from 27 countries will come together to address the unique challenges faced by those who develop, produce, test, specify, and use cryptographic modules, with a strong focus on standards such as FIPS 140-3, ISO/IEC 19790, eEIDAS, PCI, and Common Criteria. The conference helps to foster a focused, organized community of users. ICMC reviews technical issues underlying cryptographic implementation including physical security, key management, side-channel analysis, open-source development, algorithm testing, quantum threats, embedded applications, standardization, validation programs, government policy, professional ethics, and more.

Who Should Attend

ICMC is designed for anyone involved with data security based in commercial encryption, especially those who develop, manufacture, test, specify or use certified commercial off the shelf cryptographic modules, with a special focus on standards like FIPS 140-3, ISO/IEC 19790, PCI, and common criteria. Participants include cryptographic module developers, testing labs, government standards organizations, private schemes, embedded systems OEMs, academics, and the side channel research community.
